Step into the World of Heritage Assam Orthodox Long Leaf Tea

Gather around, tea enthusiasts! Let's celebrate the exquisite Orthodox Long Leaf tea, a gem from the lush fields of Heritage Tea Assam, stewarded by the visionary Rajen Baruah, nestled in the verdant landscape of Dibrugarh, Assam, India.

Cradled by hands that respect nature's ways, this organic tea, sans certification but not integrity, was carefully harvested during the coolness of winter 2018.

A Symphony of Flavors in Every Cup

Handpicked with love, sorted with care, and crafted using the time-honored Orthodox method with a handroller, this Assam black tea strikes a delightful balance. Revel in its bright, malty essence interwoven with a cheery citrus burst and a mellow, earthy foundation. Whispers of rose and raisin dance through the brew, culminating in a mid-bodied texture that soothes the palate with a delicate finish and a lingering, sweet caress.

The Legacy of Heritage Tea Assam

The dedicated community at Heritage Tea Assam is not just growing tea; they're cultivating excellence. With a keen understanding of quality and technique, their leaf material and plucking style lay the groundwork for some of the finest Assam tea you'll ever taste.

Defying the norm of fragmented CTC teas that reign in the region, Heritage Tea Assam—under Rajen Baruah's passionate direction—is on a mission to redefine Assam's tea narrative. Spearheading specialty teas, Rajen empowers local farmers to embrace and perfect the art of tea.

Nurture and Knowledge

Heritage Tea's commitment to purity is unwavering, as evidenced by their use of locally-sourced vermicompost and complete abstention from chemicals. With Rajen's meticulous notes guiding each garden's journey, education becomes the cornerstone of their ongoing evolution.

Brewing Joy, One Cup at a Time

For the ideal infusion, we suggest using approximately 1.5 teaspoons (~4 grams) of leaves for every 4 ounces (250 milliliters) of water. Your steeping adventure may last between 1 to 2 minutes.

- Opt for 195°F for a tender, mellow brew that emphasizes sweeter notes,
- Or venture to 205°F to awaken a more vigorous, full-bodied experience.

Treasure this tea, offered in 2-ounce packages, and let each sip connect you to the rich heritage and vibrant spirit that is Heritage Tea Assam.
